Lady Rustlers fall to Miles City
Riverton, WY (January 14) – The CWC women’s basketball Team lost a hard fought game to Miles City 71-53. It was a four point game with about a minute forty-seven left on the clock, when a controversial call by the officiating crew took place. Miles City’s made their free throws down the stretch to hold onto the victory. With the loss the Lady Rustlers drop to 7– 8 on the year and 0–5 in conference play.
The Lady Rustlers were led by Australian sophomore Jacki Nicholson with 20 points and eight rebounds. She was five of ten shooting and 50% from behind the 3 point line with three of six shooting. Mt. View freshman Emily Smith had a very nice game in the post scoring 11 points on three of five shooting and going five of six from the free throw line.
“Tonight I thought our effort was good. We made some mistakes but the Ladies battled back and were putting us in a position to take the lead at the end, but unfortunately things didn’t work out that way. We will get back to practice on Monday and get ready for Gillette College,” Coach Serol Stauffenberg said.
The Lady Rustlers take on Gillette College Wednesday night, Jan. 18 at 5:30 p.m. Gillette is 10–7 on the year and 3–1 in conference play. The game can be seen live on channel 5 and over the internet at www.cwc.edu or heard over the air waves on FM 88.1.
